Description

The 2018 Stroum Lectures with Gary Shteyngart will offer an opportunity to look back on the first fifteen years of the writer’s career and to look ahead to his future literary pursuits. In a series of conversations with Sasha Senderovich, Assistant Professor of Russian and Jewish Studies at UW, and readings, Gary Shteyngart will explore the questions of the role of humor and comedy in today’s world, immigration and the Jewish experience, prescient issues in Russian-American political and cultural relations, and the satirist’s role in authoritarian societies.

This event is free and open to the public, but RSVP is required via the Stroum Center's website.
